Re: Shaun Alexander released

Glad he is gone

Never was to crazy about the idea of a former Auburn QB handing off to a former Bammer RB. That would never have worked. It just gets the fundamental order of the universe out of whack. You know?

J/K Alexander is a stand-up guy and I was actually pulling for him to do well. Sounds like he just has nothing left in the gas tank.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

When a player falls so fast from being so good to so old and fat and slow like Alexander makes you wonder if he was on the juice.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

Well other than the fact that my offense on Madden no longer has a power back and stiff arm back lining up at fullback, I really don't feel our team lost anything we actually gained the number 37 jersey for next season

Not really, at least not in his case.

He simply hit the wall that many RBs do when they approach 30 and injuries and a big workload catches up with them.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

Sorry to see such a nice personable player go but the expierment was over long before it got started. Hopefully some of you realize that it's not always where you have been that should get you the job but where you might go in the future.

I think it was more out of a need for another RB rather than any type of experiment. He knew the system so Zorn brought him in just in case something happened to Portis. I think Zorn also gave him a few shots because he saw what SA had done in the past.

Re: Shaun Alexander released

thank you SA for coming in and filling the spot for us, I hope the lil exposure you got will help you find a new home.

i dont think SA was any worse then what we could have expected from him on the 6-7 carries he had, he did put alil extra effort in picking up that first down that was called back for a penalty. seemed like a classy stand-up guy.

go skins!!

I, for one, wont miss him...Mason would have been the better signing, he ran with heart and didnt block any worse in pass pro.

Ran with heart against players who didn't even make practice squads.

Marcus Mason would have been released today IF the team had picked him up.

I'm kind of glad he is gone. I never was a big fan of Alexander. I like the guys we have right now.

Yeah, who knows - Mason might have cracked the top 225 all time Redskins runners before being cut. <sarcasm font off>

WTF is the obsession with Mason? Is he tearing it up with the Jets or something? If he is I sure have'nt heard about it. I did'nt realize you could make the Hall of Fame just by playing in the preseason. This has gotten ridiculous.
